Welcome to Holland
“I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with a disability – to try to help people who have not shared that unique experience to understand it, to imagine how it would feel. It’s like this……
And then God has other plans.
So I could pout and throw a pity party every day because it's hard. I could cry because I miss family and friends. And yes, I do these things every once in a while. But if I spend all my time looking back, how can I move forward? How can I miss the opportunity to enjoy "Holland," both literally and figuratively?
So plans change and we adapt and change with them, hopefully. And tonight I will hug my little boy a little tighter and give thanks to God.
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans for a hope and a future.'"
